No Cricket for Attenborough CC

No Cricket for Attenborough CC

Amazingly this headline doesn’t refer to the 2020 season but to one 80 years ago during the 2nd World War. It’s certainly a poignant reminder & puts things into perspective.

Many thanks to Diane Sawyer (Ian Murray’s niece / Thom Murray’s cousin) who found this document (click here, please zoom in!) of the cricket club “Annual Minutes 1941“ whilst tidying up paperwork recently. She kindly passed it to a friend, Sam Clulow, who then passed it on to me – small world !

There will be some of our more senior members (myself included) who knew some of the people mentioned in the minutes & I would be interested in any anecdotes or information they may like to share – please email me at

I hope you enjoy reading this.

Best wishes to everyone out there.
